partial taking

partial taking

A condemnation of only part of a parcel of land. Often, if there is a partial taking, then the condemning authority will also have to pay damages for the decrease in value to the remaining portion. For example, if the partial taking resulted in the city gaining most of a store's parking lot,then the store itself will probably suffer a loss of revenues because customers can't find parking.The property not taken will have decreased in value because of the partial taking.
